My name is Traci Heaps, I am a Mother, Wife, Nurse & Travel Blogger based out of Washington State.

I decided to start a travel blog after searching high and low for that in which I am passionate about!  I have done direct sales, an online boutique (both of which I am still active in), and work as a Registered Nurse, but travel has been the one constant that always gets me excited!

I love helping people plan their trips, sharing my knowledge and experiences, and researching the next place we will go.  I chose the name “New Adventures Ahead” because my Husband, Matt, and I, recently became empty-nesters, well except for our two large dogs that are our children too!  While a lot of our travel is couple oriented, we also enjoy getaways with our adult children, and I love to carve out some “girl trips” as well!
